when he held the senate floor for more than 21 hours and helped shut down much of the government all in protest of president obama's health care law. it earned the 44-year-old fire brand animosity from the mainstream including whackco bird 2008 presidential nominee john mccain. >> if standing for the constitution makes me a whacko bird, then i'm a very, very proud whacko bird. >> his mother worked in canada. he renounced his canadianship in 2013. he was elected to the u.s. senate in 2012 where he's been a thorn in the side of mainstream republicans. as a conservative summit near washington earlier this year cruz urged voters to look closely at his potential gop
rivals. >> every one of them will say you betcha who diddly i am as conservative as i'll get out. i would encourage you today to demand action not talk. >> reporter: in the coming weeks cruz will likely be followed into the race by colleagues rand paul and marco rubio as well as jeb bush. it's said cruz is seeking attention by being first. >> he has been welled down in this very large republican tact so he's trying too do something unusual and dramatic in order to boost his ratings. >> reporter: cruz is expected to run a very conservative campaign aimed at tea party supporters and christian conservatives, which is why he's making his announcement here at liberty university which calls itself the largest christian university in the world. charlie? >> criphip, thanks.

within the party, so that's going to be interesting to see how that works out. >> back to ted cruz for just a second, he was elected to the senate in 2012. he's 44 years old. does his age and experience work for or gengtsagainst him? >> that's interesting. i guess it gives him an air of freshness and yet it doesn't seem like he's been somebody who's been on the national scene because he's made eight point to be in everybody's face the past few years and to be a very vivid and controversial character. you have a sense he's been there a while, but, yes, this is a young man in his first term as a senator. >> he has an instinct for the spotlight. >> oh, gee i think you can say that. >> how does he -- go ahead. >> i think what's interesting is that ted cruz feels he's going to get grassroots conservatives, but he also -- there's another
quadrant of the republican base called evangelicals. they're significant. mike huckabee will be in that space. a number of people will be. this fellow is announcing at a great evangelical baptist university because he's going straight for that vote. >> college. >> he'll go for a kuwait libertarian. >> by rand paul. >> yes. the only place he doesn't think he has a chance right now is among moderate republicans but he figures chris christie and jeb bush will beat each other up there and that will be a kind of opening. i have talked to a number of people who work with him. he believes he's got a real shot. he knows he's discounted. he thinks he should not be. >> thank you, peggy. >> thank you. >> we'll expand upon this conversation tomorrow when we talk to senator ted cruz tomorrow in studio 57. he'll be at the table tomorrow

pages sometimes incorrectly identifying them to the war on isis. right or wrong it's a threat. >> this is very disconcerting obviously to the families the specific families that were identified in this release, but more broadly across the armed services to know that those who engage in social media, that that information now can be corrupted and used by a terrorist organization. >> reporter: isis is defenseless against american air strikes which by last count have killed more than 8,500 fighters and struck more than 5,300 targets but it's fight back to use social media to threaten u.s. military personnel at their home bases. >> i thisnk this is exactly the kind of tactics that we're starting to see increase not only here but in other parts of the world where these islamic extremists/terrorist elements are looking for different, so-called soft targets. >> reporter: there are about 180 americans who are known
supporters of isis but no way of telling how many other radicals might be inspired to act by this hit list. after being asked by the pentagon youtube took the list down from its website and the u.s. central command has reissued a warning reminding servicemembers and their families to be careful when using the internet and social media. norah? >> all right, david. thank you. another big story this morning is the u.s. fight against al qaeda in yemen because it's facing a big setback mfrmt than 100 military advisers were evacuated over the weekend despite violence. there was a call to arms from their leader. the houthi fighters already hold the capital city. the u.n. security council held an emergency meeting on sunday. yemen is on the verge of a civil war. this is a huge story. >> scary. >> very scare.

pme in that briar patch. >> he went to this house in upstate new york and seized 60 to 65 boxes of durst's papers and mementos. dick garon said none of that is incriminated. his current wife is also reportedly receiving scrutiny from investigators. so far she's refused to talk publicly. what's the chance though to be honest that robert dust will get bail? i mean he has a history of running. >> the chances are slim and none and slim just left town. >> investigators are hoping to convince durst's current wife deborah lee cheriton to talk. she could potentially prove to be a key high-profile witness in the trial. durst married her just one month after the investigation of
katherine's katherine durst's murder and before the death of susan berman. >> that was incredible. >> thank you. >> we'll see you tomorrow. >> thanks erin. the preem court hears arguments over license plates and the confederate flag. they're challenging texas's decision not to issue a plate showing the battle flag. nine other states have similar license plating. the acl unh other free speech advocates support the deal. critics say the plates carry a racist message. officers described martese johnson as belligerent and highly agitated but he said that's not what he witnessed. he describes johnson as quote, polite and cordial. johnson needed ten stitches to close the gash in his head. the confrontation triggered

against average investors. since then the dow has moved 1,800 points higher. still no widespread reform. his book is out this morning in paperback. it's called "flash boys:a wall street revolt." welcome. >> thank you. >> what happened. they said oh no no it's not fixed. >> what else are they going to say. >> i understand that. but there were people who said, no, michael's got it wrong. >> yes. and anybody who said that had a stake in the existing system. it's messy. it's messy because there are two paths to fixing the system. one is regulators come in and fix it but regulator help create the system and i think that that -- you know there have been some lawsuits filed. people have been fined for manipulating the markets. it's been noisy. there's been noise out of the fcc, noise out of the --
>> but it hasn't happened? >> there hasn't been real structural change. the bad incentives that are the heart of the problem of the financial cry circumstance poorly incentivized. however, there's this other way the thing gets fixed, gets fixed in the market and the characters of the book the people who created this fair exchange, iex, their business is growing very, very fast. they're going to become a public exchange in the fall. so i think that's sort of the hopeful path is the market fixing the problem. >> right. back in the day of "the oprah show" she used to always say to her team what is your intention here for this show. i love -- i'm going somewhere with this. you said i did not intend to see just how angry i could make the richest people on wall street. so what was your intention? >> look. if i had just been told that the stock market's got this rigging in it and like ordinary investors are disadvantaged in
relationship to high frequencicy traders, i wouldn't have been interested in the story. what i found interesting is instead of trying to mack money o from it they were trying to fix the problems certainly at an experience to themselves and to wall street. certainly i thought thecharacters and their deeds were interesting. not the nefarious wall street people because, by god, we've heard enough about that. >> i believe people believe there are two sets of people. rules for rich people and rules for other people. in your book you say people have an unfair advantage. has anything changed? has the government at all stepped in to change that high frequency -- >> as i say, it's messy. the s.e.c. is making lots of noise. the former head of -- treading the market the s.e.c. just came out and said it's a death star. >> keep hearing the noise and there are charges.
>> where does it lead to? it's hard to know. whether there are rules they can create that can't be gained especially given the existing political system and the kind of poisonous relationship between the regulators and the political system. >> and here's the front page of "usa today." wall street gears up for spring break. markets are going up and up. >> that's the other thing. just as the federal reserve did a very good job of numbing the pain of the financial crisis. a stock market that's going up is a very hard stock math to do with. >> talk about you, they're making your book into movies. >> it's funny it's happening because it was never the intention. i think if you look at the looks -- the "blind-side" has it.

the way the industry is run is insane and then a firestorm after the book comes out. actually, very similar. the response of journalists, both have had books written against them but they are obvious mean material. i mean this is a really complicated subject. >> you have brad pitt playing in the big short. >> yes yes. >> hae was in "money game." >> "moneyball." >> "flash employ buoys" is going to star erinsorkin? >> pretty impressive cast. >> brat pit, christian bale ryan gosling and steve carell. >> isn't it cool that what you write is going to be on the big screen? >> it's great. i'm very lucky they haven't screwed it up. the movies are fabulous.
